A women's group yesterday called for the establishment of an official red light district in the centre of Dublin.

The Irish capital's Women's Health Project, which provides an outreach service for prostitutes, said the city should have a "toleration zone" for their use. Dublin's estimated record total of 600 working prostitutes is growing - despite coming under pressure from police operating a recently- imposed crackdown - according to project workers.
